#184: Fresh by Sly and the Family Stone

4.22.2013

Fresh by Sly and the Family Stone (1973)

Favorite Tracks: "In Time" and "Let Me Have It All" and "Frisky" and "Thankful and Thoughtful" and "Skin I'm In" and "I Don't Know (Satisfaction)" and "Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)" and "If It Were Left Up to Me"

Thoughts: Confession: Growing up I had a hard time distinguishing Sly and the Family Stone from KC and the Sunshine Band. Unforgiveable, I know.

The title of the album says it all. Super funky, luscious, full-bodied, vivacious--FRESH. I was reminded of Stevie Wonder and Al Green, which is always good. Plus, just look at that album cover! So fun.

Is This Better Than Bad?: Just as good!
